Kusztor rolls back the years on stage 2 ITT at the Belgium Tour

10 June 2021

Sport Director Gennady Mikhaylov:

“Our target today was for all our guys to come through without any issues and try to try as hard as possible, gain some good experience and learn as much as we can. We are not hugely experienced time trialists and with the big guys that are here targeting the overall, it was never going to be our objective to have a go on this stage.”

“That said, it was pleasing to see our guys giving it their best shot out there. It was a flat course, made for big powerful riders, but it was great to see Peter in particular shaking off the effects of yesterday’s crash and almost catch his minute man.”

Peter Kusztor:

“That was awesome! I really enjoyed it. I felt good despite the crash yesterday and I was able to put some good power down. It was windy, but not too bad and to be honest I prefer going into the head/cross wind because a tailwind does more favours for the bigger, heavier riders.”

“I am pleased. I am not a young man anymore so to go well is satisfying and I hope it means some positive signs for the rest of the Belgium Tour.”
